really makes my day is when an artist steps up to the plate
after having a rough year and begins to hit some singles and doubles
(O.K. I hate baseball but it's a good analogy). You can tell they've
been practicing in the off-season. That's exactly what's happened
with Fiti Futuritic's latest release Watch What Happens.
Fiti's debut release (on Grapetree Records before they went under)
All In A Day's Work was...uh..not good (that's as nice as I get
folks). Lackluster sales and experience had him going back to
and coming out with a release that shows oodles of maturity in
songwriting and production. Through witty lyrics and help from
people like Fab Da Eclectic, Pettidee, Sev Statik (Tunnel Rats
camp), Fiti has put together a sophomore release that decisively
outshines his previous project.
The strongest song on the CD is Can't Get Enough, which is getting
some decent airplay. But he has a couple offerings on the CD like
The first track, The Boy Who Could Fly, Famous, and Eat My Words.
The Cost Of Freedom comes close but the sample on the hook has
a tad bit too much reverb which sets in back in the mix too much.
It also seems to be over EQed on the high end so the hook sounds
very thin when it hits, losing it's punch. A remix is in order.
The detail that sticks out the most are Fiti's vocals. On some
they're working. On some they're not. This is all in terms of
into the musical arrangement. Even so, it's worth listening to
definitely has some decent singles to keep it going for a good
of the year.
Suggested Listening: Mars ILL,
